This week’s tasty treat is potato kale soup! This is the most effortless meal I’ve made so far. And so incredibly healthy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
First, peel the onions and dice them. Add them to a pot with butter on medium-high heat.
Then, wash your potatoes, dice them and boil them separate from the onions. Keep the skin on the potatoes because the skin holds all the nutrients of the potato, and adds taste.
Once you’ve set up the potatoes and onions to cook, wash and chop your kale.
Kale is a great veggie because it has numerous health benefits. It contains antioxidants, can help with detoxification of your digestive system, it can help lower cholesterol, and may even help lower the risk of certain cancers. To find out more info about kale and its benefits, click here.
Then, after your onions are golden, add water, six garlic cloves and your seasonings to the pot. This can be Italian seasoning, parsley, salt and/or pepper, garlic powder, etc. You can season it with anything you’re craving.
Stir that together, and add half of the boiled potatoes. Mash the other half of potatoes and add them to the pot to make the broth thicker.
Let all your ingredients then simmer together for about two hours. I put my soup in a crock pot so I could cover it and not worry about it for that time. If you’re making yours on the stove, however, keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t boil over and create a fire hazard.
Finally, just make yourself a bowl and let it cool for a couple minutes.
And there you have it: a tasty, fresh and healthy meal for you and your roomies to enjoy!blog comments powered by Disqus
